"The justification for a university is that it 
preserves the connection between knowledge 
and the zest of life, by uniting the young and 
the old in the imaginative consideration of 
learning. The university imparts knowledge, but 
it imparts it imaginatively ... A university 
which fails in this responsibility has no reason 
for existence. This atmosphere of excitement, 
arising from imaginative consideration, trans- 
forms knowledge. A fact is no longer a bare 
fact; it is invested with all its possibilities. It is 
no longer a burden on the memory: it is 'ener- 
gizing' as the poet of our dreams, and as the 
architect of our purposes."

COLLEGE 

A Four YeaVy Coeducational; 
Liberal Arts College 





The Challenge To Youth 

Through this catalog we present the aims 
and program of Florida Presbyterian College. 
We invite young people, their parents, coun- 
selors, and the friends of our college, to 
consider carefully the program as illustrated 
and to be assured that any qualified student 
will be welcomed into the college community. 



The ultimate concern of the program and 
life of Florida Presbyterian College is for the 
student. We are anxious to guide him in his 
personal development, hopeful that several 
things will happen to him in the course of 
his educational experience. We want him to 
learn to think. The human mind has great 
potential — it is not a blotter or a copier. It 
is capable of imagination, analysis and cre- 
ativity and we seek to evolve these abilities. 
Every individual is a special human being 
with diverse endowments, background, tal- 
ents and possibilities. We seek, therefore, to 
give every student the opportunity to develop 
as a person. 



The student of today is preparing for 
involvement in a rapidly changing and dyna- 
mic situation. Here he is given the guidance 
and the opportunity to develop courage (this 
is a tremendous virtue for those who live in 
the future) by putting a premium on new 
ideas. Most important, we are concerned with 
assisting the student to become a good, con- 
cerned, committed human being. Our task is 
to encourage and inspire those who study in 
our program to come to the moment of faith 
when he says, "This I believe and here I 
stand." 

At Florida Presbyterian College there is 
tremendous excitement, stimulation and op- 
portunity for real personal achievement.

To Open Horizons 

Liberal arts, so called because their study 
liberates men and fits them for a place in 
a free society, means opened horizons. The 
central concern of Florida Presbyterian Col- 
lep:e is to lead her students to deeper insijjht, 
comprehension, and understanding of men, 
of our universe, and of the relations between 
the two. Through superior students, experi- 
mentation and Christian community, Florida 
Presbyterian College plants in her students 
a desire for knowledge and a love of wisdom 
and invites (hem to the satisfactions which 
the persistent i)ursuit of such ideals may 
afford. 



Outstanding Students 

Florida Presbyterian College actively 
seeks outstanding students. Trusting that 
our leaders tomorrow are the better students 
of today, Florida Presbyterian College trains 
them to be good leaders and to seek and to 
assume leadership. Certain kinds of curri- 
culum and methods of teaching are possible 
and appropriate only with outstanding stu- 
tlents. While Florida Presbyterian College 
has few rigid entrance requirements, it ex- 
pects of her prospective students consider- 
able attainment in academic subjects. In 
addition to scholarly achievement, students 
should display unusual breadth of interest 
and excellence of character conducive to the 
orderly transition from secondary school to 
college. Young men and women must be eager 
to learn to grow physically, intellectually, and 
spiritually. Above all, they must be ready to 
accept much of the responsibility for their 
own learning. 



Living Research 



Florida Presbyterian College exists to 
prove to the world that the minimum or 
average need not be the norm in education 
(or thinking) and to test the proposition that 
education can be both liberal and Christian. 
It adopts experimental attitudes in attempt- 
ing to reach its goals through unique but 
carefully considered means. 

We are engaged in living research in 
higher education, not merely in developing 
something we already have. The general di- 
rection of our research is to discover how 
students can most skillfully learn to make 
evaluations. Description and analysis are not 
sufficient, we believe, for moral education. 
They cannot be dispensed with ; they are 
necessary in the search for truth. But the 
search for truth cannot stop with them. 
Truth requires judgment and choice based 
upon moral presuppositions. The formula- 
tions of standards of judgment as a conscious 
intellectual activity and the habitual judg- 
ment of such standards are an indispensable 
part of education. We do not presume that 
P'lorida Presbyterian College is the first col- 
lege to assume the necessity of a moral end 
of education, but we are experimental in 
trying to find out how best such an end can 
be realized. 




A Christian Community 

In still another way w^e are probably more 
experimental than in any other: we are try- 
ing to find out what a Christian college is! 
Those who have studied the idea longest and 
hardest agree that people in general have 
no clear-cut idea of what a Christian college 
is or should be and that disagreement is to 
be expected. Still we are all united in believ- 
ing that there should be a college in which 
the presuppositions are avowedly Christian. 
Truth, freedom and Christianity have in- 
evitable connections whether in the search, 
the heritage or the government of a Chris- 
tian college. And we have a vision of a 
Christian community which is not monastic 
in separating dedicated persons from the 
world but which prepares dedicated people 
to go back into the world and witness through 
the exercise of their intellect. This witness, 
we pray, will prove to the world that a 
Cliristian education best fits people for life, 
liberty and the pursuit of happiness for 
others. 




A pi-ivate, coeducational, liberal arts col- 
lege, founded and maintained bv the Pres- 
byterian Churches, both U.S. and U.P.U.S.A. 
acting co-operatively, Florida Presbyterian 
folle^e acknowlerljLres as primary in the 
search for truth a knowledge of God and of 
ourselves as revealed in Jesus Christ. The 
T'olleKe examines and nurtui-es beliefs and 
recognizes faith as a prol>in^'- and vitalizing 
force. Dedicated to the inspiration of a strong 
sense of Christian obligation for involvement 
and leadership in local and global events, the 
CoWe^e is e(|ually dedicated to the proposi- 
tion that its doors are open to qualified 
students of all faiths. 



Motivation 

Horida Presbyterian College thus has a 
deep concern for its students. It seeks to stim- 
ulate growth — the student's realization of 
individual potential — and encourages indi- 
vidual attainment. With the fundamental 
aim of the College community to make stu- 
dents aware of the seriousness of their voca- 
tion, students, throughout their undergradu- 
ate careers, exercise their powers of decision 
on the basis of informed and thoughtful 
judgment consciously pursued. 



Learning is Personal 

Florida Presbyterian College is a unified 
academic community in which each mem- 
ber's recognition and security depend on his 
freedom to pursue schi)larship and to asso- 
ciate with others. Here learning is personal 
and widely varied because of the realization 
that knowledge comes from others of dif- 
fering as well as similar backgrounds and 
pursuits. We employ both conventional and 
unconventional methods in the search for 
truth to provide insights and skills which 
train and excite our students' intellects and 
emotions for creative and imaginative ex- 
pression. 

In guiding our students' development, we 
afford them innumerable opportunities to 
learn emotional independence, the necessity 
for individual questioning, and the right and 
duty of personal judgment. Thus, Florida 
Presbyterian College cherishes freedom of 
thought. For its entire academic community 
— students, faculty, staff — the College insists 
upon respect for human dignity and indivi- 
dual moral responsibility supported by the 
belief that humanity was created for one 
great co-operation. Thus the College con- 
fronts students with the conflicts of cultures, 
affording them an opportunity to intensify 
their own search for meaningful and applic- 
able values. Students learn to arrive at new 
and broader understandings of themselves 
and their studies in relation to culture, crea- 
tion and the ultimate. 

Prospective students, regardless of major 
field of study and plans beyond the under- 
graduate years, will find in Florida Presby- 
terian College educational experiences basic 
to lasting satisfaction, personal integration 
and social usefulness. The program of liberal 
arts, complete in itself, is eminently practical, 
regardless of a student's intended vocation 
or avocation. In addition, the College provides 
specific preprofessional training for the min- 
istry, medicine, law. education, business and 
graduate work in specialized fields. 

In short. Florida Presljyterian College 
aims to provide life-long attitudes of always 
seeking deeper, fuller comprehension, of al- 
ways seeking the whole view, and of always 
following courses of action to extend capa- 
bilities and responsibilities for personal and 
community betterment. 






A Fresh Start 

Founded in the tradition of the great 
American liberal arts schools, Florida Pres- 
byterian College has been singularly blessed 
from its beginning. The founders, trustees, 
staff and faculty have together pursued a 
policy of experimentation. This policy has 
been not to cast out what has proved suc- 
cessful in education of the highest quality, 
but rather with a fresh start to develop and 
adopt new approaches, programs, facilities 
and procedures. Already the curriculum and 
the permanent campus, planned by architects 
and educators, have captured widespread at- 
tention and enthusiasm among those con- 
cerned with meeting the vastly increasing 
demands for higher education in the United 
States for superior students. 

To carry out a college program of the 
first order efficiently and at a minimum cost, 
students themselves undertake independent 
learning during their four years. The pro- 
gram generates independence of thinking and 



study to produce fuller understanding, to 
inspire personal initiative and to develop ac^ 
ceptance of responsibility. The entire program 
emphasizes independent study, under faculty 
guidance and review, and elicits and main- 
tains individual responsibility through spe- 
cific means. 

Core Courses 

To promote a community of learners and 
to demonstrate the interrelatedness of knowl- 
edge, Florida Presbyterian College asks every 
student to take at least one course which all 
students in his year are taking. These are the 
Core cour.ses taught co-operatively by pro- 
fes.sors of art, biology, economics, history, 
physics, political science, psychology, religion 
and sociology. In the.se, students pursue with 
the group and on their own a critical under- 
standing of the major attempts of man to 
interpret his purpose and to organize his 
experience through the analytic and historic 
studv of works and institutions. 




Studies Abroad 

To increase in our students opportunities 
for self-directed study and a sense of world 
community, Florida Presbyterian College 
arranges studies abroad during the Winter 
Term, the summer and the junior year. 
Students travel in groups and singly with 
projects for study planned in advance. The 
College co-operates with other schools here 
and abroad, tests the language proficiency 
of students for the project undertaken, eval- 
uates their accomplishments upon their re- 
turn to the campus and awards equivalent 
credit. As a member of the Associated Mid- 
Florida Colleges, Florida Presbyterian en- 
courages its students to participate in a 
Junior Year Abroad Program in France, 
Germany and Spain. 

Senior Seminar 

During his senior year, every student 
takes a seminar in his major field. Upon 
recommendation of their major professor, 
seniors may elect to pursue an independent 
program of study and research in addition 
to or in lieu of the senior seminar. They 
present the results of their work in theses. 
Ordinarily, thesis research begins in the first 
semester of the senior year and extends 
throughout the second semester. 




Winter Term 

The Winter Term is a special four-week 
period of independent study for all under- 
graduates. It comes between the fall semes- 
ter, which begins early in September, and 
the spring semester, which begins early in 
February. With examinations for the fall 
semester over before the Christmas holidays, 
January is free for intensive study. Designed 
to develop the qualities of self-discipline in 
pursuits requiring the student to be the 
prime explorer, the Winter Term asks him 
to work without the customary routine of 
classroom and lecture hall on a single prob- 
lem growing out of his other studies and to 
present his findings in final form. With 
guidance he chooses and limits his subject, 
gathers material, organizes it and presents 
it as a paper, a short story, a painting, a 
piece of laboratory apparatus. During this 
special semester, each professor directs the 
activities of about fifteen students. A stu- 
dent selects a professor to work under ; some- 
times the group works co-operatively on 
topics or problems announced in advance, and 
sometimes they work separately. Through- 
out the four weeks, the professor is available 
for consultation and guidance. This intensive, 
independent study supplements the extensive 
work of the courses and thus affords unusual 
opportunity for the student during each of 
his four years to engage in extended, creative 
work not normally afforded in traditional 
undergraduate curriculums. Through the 
Winter Term at Florida Presbyterian College, 
the student not only works on his own to 
master a limited subject but may have the 
benefit of step-by-step evaluation of his 
work. Some of these projects are conducted 
in foreign countries.

Independent Study 

ProficieiK-y rather than fulfillment of 
course requirements is the measure of ac- 
complishment and admission to advanced 
studies. Thus performance {e.ii;., on place- 
ment tests) rather than credit previously 
earned admits students to advanced work in 
the Core courses, languages, sciences and 
mathematics and determines progress toward 
a degree. In many areas, students can work 
independently, preparing themselves for ad- 
vanced standing, doing research and writing 
papers, and receive recognition for their 
work without attending lectures and classes. 
Hence a student may accelerate his educa- 
tion during the school year and the summer 
months at home according to his capabilities 
and secure the full recognition for work done 
independently which normally is certified by 
course credits. 



Size of Classes 

Florida Presbyterian College has few 
middle-sized classes. They are either large 
enough to encourage independent work and 
the exchange of ideas within the whole com- 
munity or small enough to permit discussions 
in which learners (that is, both teacher and 
students) e.xplore, debate and form conclu- 
sions together. Both large and small groups 
place increasing responsibility on the student 
and give him two different kinds of expe- 
rience in learning. The large course contri- 
butes to the idea of community by assembling 
all students of a given year for lectures, 
panels, demonstrations, movies and concerts 
and by providing small groups where stu- 
dents test their personal reactions against 
those of their fellows in a free forum. 



^WWB 




The Language Laboratory 

A primary objective of studying a modern 
foreign language is learning to speak and 
understand it. The language laboratory facil- 
itates this aspect of learning through aural- 
oral practice that the conventional classroom 
does not provide. The laboratory at Florida 
Presbyterian College is of the newest design. 
It operates thirty-five positions by remote 
control so that the student can work inde- 
pendently or as a member of a class. By 
merely dialing an appropriate number, the 
student can hear an instructional tape, re- 
cord his own responses, and play it back for 
comparison and corrections. As many as a 
hundred different tapes are available to the 
student at any time. Languages offered are 
Chinese, French, German, Russian, Spanish, 
Latin and Greek. 




12 




The Writing Laboratory 

Since academic success depends in great 
measure upon the written word, Florida Pres- 
byterian College emphasizes a high degree 
of proficiency in writing, both in the selec- 
tion of its students and in determining their 
progress. The College looks for students who 
do not require training in writing in a formal 
course of composition. It makes heavy de- 
mands upon them in their writing. Students 
learn to expect criticism from all their pro- 
fessors on their written work and help in 
planning papers and achieving effective style. 
In addition some staff members are available 
to help students overcome individual weak- 
nesses. The writing laboratory enables stu- 
dents to form efficient procedures by provid- 
ing a workshop for wi'iting with a faculty 
consultant and appropriate reference books. 



The William Luther Cobb 
Library 

Because the liberal arts college must be a 
reading college, the library is the center of 
the academic program. With our emphasis 
upon independent work, the library, gift of 
Mr. and Mrs. William Luther Cobb of Tarpon 
Springs, F'lorida, is the primary instrument 
in the educational process, the storehouse of 
the information, opinions and techniques 
necessary to a liberal education. Through 
open shelves and collections maintained in 
each dormitory, students have easy access 
to many books. The library not only supplies 
materials for reference, required reading and 
research papers but also compiles bibliogra- 
phies, prepares exhibits and promotes inter- 
est in reading. 

The initial ten year goal of the William 
Luther Cobb Library is 100,000 volumes. At 
present there are 50,000 catalogued volumes 
on the shelves. 



13 




The Science Laboratories 

A student in the natural sciences has 
opportunity to undertake laboratory practice 
and research. Manual exercises and routine 
experiments (which are not experiments at 
all but repetitions) are minimized. Emphasis 
is rather on the student's acquiring the abil- 
ity to understand theory and experimenta- 
tion, exploring the appropriateness of meth- 
ods and evaluating design and techniques. 
The small laboratory becomes the place for 
group discussion and provides occasion for 
exchange of ideas and procedures among 
students. 

Natural and man-made laboratories com- 
bine to provide varied off-campus scientific 
study in the College's immediate area. The 
climate allows year-round field work in na- 
tural laboi'atories such as lakes, bays and 
land-area communities, and students can ap- 
ply their knowledge of chemistry, physics, 
and biology to aquatic environments under 
a continuing research program. There is also 
a high concentration of excellently staffed 
laboratories concerned with electronics, nu- 
clear physics and chemistry in many private 
and governmental research facilities in the 
area.

The Studios 

The practice of art and of music flourishes 
in the studios of Florida Presbyterian Col- 
le^e. Here students may receive professional 
guidance individually or in groups of various 
sizes, or they may pursue independently 
the mastery of techniques. In the art studio 
a student works in many media. In the music 
studio he may study voice or the instrument 
of his choice. As a result of their studio work, 
students periodically offer exhibits of their 
paintings, prints and sculptures and present 
recitals to the College community and friends. 
In its emphasis upon the activities of the 
studios, the College encourages its students' 
personal involvement with the materials of 
the creative and performing arts.

This is the basic curriculum, the minimum 
required program of the College. Students 
working with their advisers build on it, 
adding to it, adapting it to their abilities 
and needs. It gives them a choice of languages 
and sciences, a choice between mathematics 
(on several levels) and logic. In addition their 
proficiencies give them scope in: 

a. Language. Students must demonstrate 
competence in speaking, reading and 
writing a foreign language and be fa- 
miliar with the culture of the country 
to which the language is native. Compe- 
tence sometimes is achieved through 



two I'dllege years of stutly following two 
years of high-school study in I lie same 
language. 

b. Mathematics and logic. Students take 
whatever mathematics they are ready 
for, or logic, in either the freshman 
or sophomore year. 

c. Cour.ses in the major. By postponing 
mathematics or logic or a natural 
science to the sophomore year, students 
may begin work in their major field 
as freshmen. The several fields of 
major study stipulate various require- 
ments (see Courses of Instruction pp. 
41 ).

Divisional and 
Interdivisional Majors 

students may pursue a divisional or 
interdivisional major consisting of ten 
or more courses of which four to six 
will represent concentration in one 
discipline with the additional courses 
related to this major. 



The curriculum also provides specific 
preparation courses for graduate work in 
specialized fields, including law, teaching, 
medicine and the ministry. 

d. Other courses. The College accepts and 
endorses the policy general in Ameri- 
can education that a liberal arts pro- 
gram includes studies in the three 
principal divisions. Yet it does not ac- 
cept the standard procedure of pre- 
scribing a certain number of courses 
in other than the major departments 
because it tends to an accumulation of 
courses not in any deep sense relevant 
to the intelligent development of the 
particular student or to his major 
course of study. Accordingly, it has 
established a policy of making the 
course of study unified for individual 
development and interests. The College 
does not specify attention to other 
fields as a given number of courses 
but rather as a plan involving a stu- 
dent's unique experiences of program- 
med special readings connected with 
his main interest, of independent 
study, or of other devices. The prin- 
ciple operative in each case is that the 
plan of study be coherent and orderly 
and not defined as formal course 
credits.

Curriculum for 
Applied Science 

The immediate translation of scientific 
discovery into technological application is a 
hallmark of much of today's engineering 
effort. This kind of engineering demands 
men trained, not in narrow technical special- 
ties, but in the broader fields of science and 
mathematics. The recommended curriculum 
should produce studeots well-equipped to en- 
ter the research and development areas of 
industry. 

The Applied Science student studies hu- 
manities and social sciences through the Core 
curriculum and elective courses and obtains 
a high proficiency in a foreign language. 
Emphasized in his program are the basic 
sciences, mathematical techniques and the 
use of the computer for the solution of en- 
gineering science problems. 



Teacher Education 

Recognizing the key role of the public 
school in a free society, Florida Presbyterian 
College offers a program leading to certifi- 
cation to teach at the secondary level in most 
areas in which the college offers a major. 
The student interested in certification should 
apply to the Teacher Education Advisory 
Committee no later than the first semester 
of the Junior year. The internship is done in 
the local Pinellas County schools. 



Degrees 

Florida Presbyterian College awards the 
degrees of Bachelor of Arts to students in 
the Humanities and the Social Sciences and 
Bachelor of Science to students in mathe- 
matics, the natural sciences and applied 
science. 

Requirements for Degrees 

In the basic curriculum of 36 courses and 
4 Winter Terms the College looks for: 

a. The experience of the general inter- 
disciplinary Core courses ; 

b. a grasp of the fundamental methods 
and concepts in the humanities, social 
sciences and physical sciences; 

c. proficiency in a language other than 
the student's native language; 

d. competence in a major field of study; 

e. participation and achievements in phys- 
ical education ; 

f. achievement in independent study, 
particularly in the Winter Term ; 

g. ability to speak and write English 
effectively and correctly; 

h. proficiency in reading skills and com- 
prehension. 
Ordinarily two academic years in resi- 
dence are required for graduation. 



19 




Grades and Their Meaning 

The evaluation of academic progress at 
Florida Presbyterian College rests on a stu- 
dent's response to educational opportunity 
rather than on the fulfillment of an arbitrary 
set of course requirements. Our standards 
emphasize quality rather than quantity, and 
our rewards and awards are for outstanding 
and creative work. To emphasize the greater 
importance of intellectual achievement than 
of grades, Florida Presbyterian College uses 
grades only for advisory purposes and for 
the transfer of credit to other institutions. 
In advising students, we use the grades of 
H (honors), S (satisfactory) and U (un- 
satisfactory). 

After College 

Education at Florida Presbyterian Col- 
lege has been designed to be complete in it- 
self as well as a starting jjoint for a continu- 
ing search for truth. 

F>y its natui-e, it will prove an excellent 
training base for those who wish to pursue 
advanced academic training in a si)ecialized 



field. We expect a substantial number of 
our graduates to go on to some advanced 
study — in education, medicine, law, the min- 
istry, the sciences, the humanities, engineer- 
ing, the social sciences and other fields. 

To assist students in obtaining perma- 
nent positions after graduation, we have a 
placement office to arrange visits for com- 
panies and agencies seeking personal inter- 
views with our students. In addition, the 
Placement Office undertakes special activi- 
ties to assist those graduates who seek 
opportunities in teaching. 

A continuing program of alumni parti- 
cipation is to be established, and close contact 
with alumni is planned through various pub- 
lications, personal visits, seminars, class re- 
unions, a continuing study program and 
other means. This College will endeavor to 
continue, as it did during the undergraduate 
yeai's, to serve as a great stimulus to the 
men and women who came to it seeking an 
education of high quality and who have left 
as mature, responsible people capable of 
leadership.

Campus Life 




Florida Presbyterian College provides a 
residential student life, most of its under- 
graduates living on campus. The young men 
and women in residence learn from their 
friends and associates, acquire understand- 
ing, leadership, and tolerance, and practice 
free, democratic choice of action. Our non- 
resident students participate in all campus 
functions in every way possible. All students 
become involved in and identified with the 
academic community as a whole. 

The community center of the College is 
the College Union ; it is for all members of 
the college family — students, faculty, admin- 
istration, alumni and guests. It is not just a 
building or group of buildings; it is an or- 
ganization and a program. The Union has 
been called the "living room" of the college 
and as such it is the hub around which re- 
volves the social life of the institution. All 
students receive automatic membership in 
the College Union upon registration. 



Honor System 

student government is an important part 
of campus life at the College. Collective action 
by undergraduates in self-government is vital 
to the College program. Basic thereto is the 
Honor System, enforced by the students 
themselves. All student activity, academic 
and social, presupposes it. Predicated on 
Christian values, in its practice it contributes 
to the development of emerging, mature hu- 
man beings. The College encourages a full, 
satisfying and meaningful campus life in- 
volving all students, and they organize and 
conduct social functions, publications, intra- 
mural sports, organizations and special 
events like concerts.

Counseling 



Each student receives guidance from a 
faculty adviser to whom he is assigned. The 
day before the opening of P'all Semester, the 
adviser prepares his students for the College 
program. He schedules periodic conferences 
during the year with each student and is 
available for additional meetings upon re- 
quest. Faculty advisers form an integral part 
of the counseling program, and through his 
adviser every student has access to every 
special program and assistance likely to make 
college life meaningful and enjoyable. 

The College compiles much information 
concerning students during the course of ad- 
mission: strengths, weaknesses, interests, 
aptitudes and the like. The Director of Coun- 



seling uses such information in choosing the 
most appropriate adviser for each student. 
He gives both the adviser and the resident 
counselor relevant information. Thus rather 
than being merely one of the herd, each stu- 
dent is a distinct person with his individual 
problems and potentialities. 

Through the resident counselor, faculty 
adviser or any faculty or staff member or 
througn his own efforts, a student may seek 
and learn ways to get additional assistance 
for making the most of his college experience. 
A professional counseling service is available 
on a confidential basis to students with per- 
sonal problems. And a vocational-guidance 
program assists students in academic and 
vocational planning.

Religious Life 




The religious program of Florida Pres- 
byterian College is ecumenical, organized 
through denominational groups as the btu- 
dent Christian Association (SCA). Its mis- 
sion is to focus the Christian faith m the 
academic community. To this end, the SCA 
constantly strives toward the following: 

persistent, prayerful search for the 
meaning of the Christian faith; 
conscious effort to discern God's pur- 
pose for each person especially as it 
relates to his vocation; 
fellowship of the academic community 
joined in a common worship and the 
search for truth ; 

continuous appraisal of the community 
to help keep the Christian faith central 
in our search for truth; 
conscious concern for the life and mis- 
sion of the Ecumenical Church and en- 
couragement of responsible participa- 
tion in its members. 
The basis for the program is worship. 



Being within the Protestant tradition, all 
aspects of our program are voluntary. The 
chaplain and choir conduct four worship ser- 
vices weekly for the community. The wor- 
ship committee of the SCA conducts evening 
prayers three times a week. Through plan- 
ning and conducting services, students have 
the opportunity of understanding better the 
meaning of worship. After Evening Prayer 
on Sunday, the SCA conducts its general 
program of the week. During the week, the 
SCA sponsors small study groups. Faculty 
members conduct general discussions m the 
dormitories. The SCA program deals with 
the teachings of Christianity and encom- 
passes campus, community, national and in- 
ternational problems. Students also have an 
opportunity to take part in regional and 
national conferences and ecumenical work 
camps. The program of Florida Presbyterian 
College helps the student to an intelligent and 
responsible Christianity in all areas of life.

Medical Services 

students have medical attention and ser- 
vices throughout the academic year. A reg- 
istered nurse is on hand and a physician 
available at all times on a consulting basis. 
Those cases that cannot be treated in the 
college's own well-equipped infirmary will be 
referred to either of two excellent hospitals 
in the City of St. Petersburg. 

Sports for All 

In addition to the required physical edu- 
cation for freshmen and sophomores, an in- 
tegral part of the curriculum, the College 
conducts an intensive program in intramural 
sports of all kinds for both men and women, 
with emphasis on such water sports as swim- 
ming, boating, sailing, water skiing and skin 
diving. A full program of intercollegiate 
sports is offered by the college. Included are 
baseball, basketball, golf, judo, tennis, fenc- 
mg, swimming and sailing. Contests are 
scheduled with senior colleges throughout 
the South. The Annual Suncoast Classic Bas- 
ketball Tournament is one of the highlights 
of the intercollegiate sports program. 




Concerts 

Students in the Chapel Choir, the Concert 
Choir and the Sandpipers make their own 
music and give frequent concerts around the 
state of Florida. Periodically, College instru- 
mentalists and singers and visiting artists 
give recitals of chamber music and solos on 
campus. 

The College sponsors an annual series of 
concerts. The 1964-65 program included 
George London, Victoria De Los Angeles, 
John Canaday, Alexander Brailowskv, the 
Netherlands Chamber Choir, the Vienna 
Choir Boys, Ralph Kirkpatrick and the New 
York Woodwind Quintet. Upon request stu- 
dents are given tickets to each performance. 

In the city, two symphony orchestras, an 
opera group, a woodwind quintet, two concert 
series and a string quartet offer numerous 
programs. 



24 




Lectures 

The Core curriculum, the academic so- 
cieties, forums and clubs of the College bring 
guest speakers throughout the year. Certain 
of these lectures are designed to meet the 
need of specific groups ; others are open to 
the general public. A Faculty Lecture Series 
is presented each year. 

Films 

About once a month the College runs a 
movie chosen for any reason that makes it 
excellent: its plot, its photography, its di- 
rection, its acting, its technical innovations, 
its humor, its topical interest. Films in this 
series are supplemented by pictures shown 
by College departments, divisions, the Core 



program, and the Student Activities Com- 
mittee. 

Dramatic Activities 

Dramatics is for the many, not the few, 
at Florida Presbyterian College. Although 
there are major productions each semester 
for experienced actors and the interested and 
ambitious, many students who can spare only 
a limited amount of time have the oppor- 
tunity to take part in dramatic reading every 
two or three weeks. Dramatic productions 
also play a part in course work, for at least 
once a semester students present a play 
during the regular lecture hour for the Core 
program. 



25 



Societies 

The Social Science Forum, open to stu- 
dents majoring or especially interested in 
Economics, History, Political Science, Psy- 
chology and Sociology or Anthropology, 
seeks to stimulate student interest in grad- 
uate work and professional opportunties, in 
part through discussions of controversial 
and interdisciplinary materials. 

Foreign Language clubs promote interest, 
understanding and appreciation of the lan- 
guage, literature and culture of the countries 
involved. 

The Chemistry Club affords an oppor- 
tunity for students of chemistry to become 
better acquainted, to secure experience in 
preparing and presenting technical material 
before audiences, to foster a professional 
pride in chemistry. 




Publications 

The Trident is the student newspaper 
published weekly. Incite is a literary maga- 
zine appearing once or twice a semester. 
Students also publish the annual FPC Hand- 
book, the publication designed for new stu- 
dents at the College. A college yearbook is 
published annually by a student staff. 



ADMISSIONS OFFICE 




26 




Freshman Admission 



In admitting students, this College considers past academic performance in mathematics, 
science, literature, language and social studies; achievement on examinations; and personal 
qualifications such as character, range of interest, poise, maturity and personal development. 
It emphasizes the student's ability to profit from and contribute to the learning community. 
Anyone deemed undesirable because of his conduct and character may be refused admission 
(or, as a student, may be requested to withdraw from the College at any time). 



This Is The Admissions 
Procedure: 

a. Early in his senior year in high school, 
a candidate should write to the Director of 
Admissions, Florida Presbyterian College, for 
an application form and a transcript form. 
A formal application for admission, along 
with an application fee of $10, should be 
completed and returned to the Director of 
Admissions. (The fee is not refundable.) The 
applicant should request the principal of the 
high school from which he is to be graduated 
to send a transcript of his record to the 
Director of Admissions of Florida Presby- 
terian College. 

b. Applicants must arrange to take the 
Scholastic Aptitude Test offered by the Col- 
lege Entrance Examination Board. The re- 
sults of the tests should be submitted to the 
Director of Admissions of the College. It is 
recommended that the applicant take his 
Scholastic Aptitude Test in December of his 
senior year. Scores from the January, March 
and May dates are acceptable ; however, the 
results from the December testing are pre- 
ferred. The Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude 
Test taken during the junior year is helpful. 

A visit to the College is highly recom- 
mended. Please telephone or write to the 
Admissions Office for an appointment. 

Florida Presbyterian College highly rec- 
ommends, but does not require, that appli- 
cants take the following Achievement Tests: 
Intermediate or Advanced Mathematics and 
English, selected from twelve choices. Test- 
ing centers throughout the country give these 
at specified times. At least six weeks before 
the date of the test, the candidate should 
apply directly to the College Entrance Exam- 
ination Board, Box 592, Princeton, New 
Jersey. The Board sends an information 
booklet giving full details about testing cen- 
ters and the tests available and will mail the 
test results directly to the colleges designated 
by the applicant.

The applicant for admission to the Fresh- 
man class must have completed the' grad- 
uation requirements and demonstrated aca- 
demic competence in a high school or prepar- 
atory school accredited by a state or regional 
accrediting agency. Even though the aca- 
demic record will not be judged primarily 
on specific units of work, certain courses are 
strongly recommended: four years of Eng- 
lish, three years of mathematics, two years 
of lang.uage, one year of history and one 
year (preferably two) of science. 

The Admissions Office will compile com- 
plete information on each applicant for ad- 
mission, including the original request for 
admission information, transcripts from the 
applicant's high school or preparatory school, 
test scores, personal recommendations and 
any other pertinent data. This file forms the 
basis for selection of candidates by the Ad- 
mission Committee each year. 

Advanced Placement 
Program 

Courses will be honored at Florida Pres- 
byterian College on the basis of scores on the 
Advanced Placement Examinations adminis- 
tered by the College Entrance Examination 
Board. Scores of 3, 4 and 5 will automatically 
certify the student in the course covered by 
the examination. Scores of 2 will be referred 
to the staff of the appropriate discipline for 
recommendations concerning possible credit. 
No credit will be allowed for scores of 1. 



27 



Transfer Admission 

A student at another college or university 
wishing to transfer to Florida Presbyterian 
College must complete the requirements for 
admission already listed and submit a tran- 
script of his college record with a catalogue 
and a statement from the college of his aca- 
demic standing and personal qualifications. 

Transfer applicants who have previously 
taken the Scholastic Aptitude Test may sub- 
mit these scores or arrange to retake this 
examination. If the applicant has not taken 
the Scholastic Aptitude Test he must arrange 
to do so. All applicants must submit results 
of the Scholastic Aptitude Test to the Direc- 
tor of Admissions of Florida Presbyterian 
College. 

Transfer of credit from other institutions 
approved by the Regional Accrediting Agency 
depends upon the correspondence of the 
courses to those offered at Florida Presby- 
terian College and the approval of the aca- 
demic division concerned. Grades below C are 
not acceptable for transfer. 

Students transferring into Florida Pres- 
byterian College at the Junior level are ex- 
pected to transfer twenty courses and to take 
five courses each semester during the Junior 
and Senior years. 



Special Admission 

Some students academically too advanced 
for further high school study or over twenty- 
one years of age, may have the entrance re- 
quirements waived. The Admissions Commit- 
tee considers such cases individually. 



Candidate's Reply 

All candidates (including financial aid 
applicants) will deposit $50 with the Director 
of Admissions by May 1 if admitted prior to 
that date. Applicants admitted after May 1 
will be expected to make this deposit within 
two weeks after acceptance. This money, 
though not refundable, is applied toward the 
student's tuition upon enrollment. 

The applicant will receive a form for a 
medical examination to be completed by a 
physician within the three months preceding 
matriculation, and to reach the Director of 
Admissions by August 20. 

On or about June 15 each student who 
has been accepted and who has paid a $50 
acceptance fee will be mailed information in 
regard to the orientation period prior to 
registration. 




Costs 

A college education of high intellectual 
challenge is of lasting value and like most 
things of value is costly. Only ignorance is 
more so. Private, non-tax-supported institu- 
tions like Florida Presbyterian College make 
every effort to keep the cost of education 
down. As a result the student pays only a por- 
tion of the actual bill for his own education.

'•"■'Cost per year for a double air-conditioned 
room. A single air-conditioned room is $450 per 
year. The air-conditioning will be in operation 
during the months of September, October, No- 
vember, March, April and May. The college 
assumes no liability for utility breakdown over 
which it has no control. All students living on 
campus are required to deposit $5 for room 
breakage and $1 for their key. 
'■^'■■•'■'College policy requires all students to carry 
accident and health insurance. The above rate 
covers students for only the school year. 



All accounts are due and payable on term 
basis September 1 and January 15. Students 
may make financial arrangements permit- 
ting accounts to be paid on an installment 
basis in accordance with the plans approved 
by the Board of Trustees. All accounts must 
be paid by December 1 and May 1 before 
students will be permitted to take final 
examinations. 

In order to meet changing economic con- 
ditions, the Board of Trustees reserves the 
right to revise charges as conditions may 
warrant. 



Music Fees 

Private instruction in music is approxi- 
mately $180 per year for one hour a week 
and $105 per year for one-half hour. 



Financing Your Education 

Generally, half of the total cost, minus a 
$50 acceptance fee and any room deposits, 
is due at entrance in September and the rest 
January 15. Matriculation is a contract bind- 
ing the student (and his parents) for tuition, 
fees, room and board for the entire term. 
The college has many different ways to fi- 
nance your education. The Director of Ad- 
missions will send a list of scholarships and 
loans upon request. The College co-operates 
with insurance and tuition-plan companies to 
make available to parents various programs 
for financing educational expenses. 



On-Campus Employment 

Many part-time jobs are available: in 
dining rooms, offices, laboratories, library, 
bookstore, swimming pool. They pay $250- 
$300 a year for a ten hour week. Although 
off -campus part time work is also available, 
the day of full time earning while learning is 
about over. It is recommended that freshmen 
not undertake part time employment. Stu- 
dent instructors assist professors in research 
and teaching responsibilities. These students 
are paid $250-$300 per year and they are 
selected because of their high level of 
achievement. 



Loans 

students needing financial assistance 
ought to consider borrowing money for a 
college education. Student loans are good 
business: a college education considerably 
increases earning power, many loans require 
little or no deferred interest, and some need 
not be repaid in full. The college has endowed 
loan funds and participates in the National 
Defense Education Loan Program.

Heartbeat of a College 

In no other area was so much painstaking 
care and concei-n evidenced at Florida Pres- 
byterian College as in the selection of its 
faculty — the heartbeat of any such institu- 
tion. Regardless of status or tenure, every 
faculty member finally selected combines 
scholarship and teaching to an extraordinary 
degree. 

The criteria for acceptance, as set forth 
by the Board of Trustees, call for a teacher 
with depth and command in his field of 
specialization and a breadth of cultural back- 
ground enabling him to relate his own dis- 



cipline to the totality of experience ; who 
demonstrates personal and professional com- 
petence and growth through research, pub- 
lication and professional participation; who 
inspires students with his respect for his 
profession by his ability, his character and 
his conduct; who has the ability himself to 
think creatively and objectively and to in- 
spire his students to do likewise ; who ex- 
tends himself to his students' service, to his 
colleagues in co-operation and to his com- 
munity in concern ; and finally, whose Chris- 
tianity the students will want to emulate.

The Campus 

The breeze-swept, bay front campus of 
Florida Presbyterian College is still develop- 
ing. The 285 acres, studded with palm, pine 
and cypress trees is outlined by the shore 
of Boca Ciega Bay on the west and U. S. 
Highway 19 approaching the famous Sun- 
shine Skyway on the east. It is close to the 
southernmost tip of Pinellas County, the 
peninsula separating the Gulf of Mexico from 
Tampa Bay. 

The campus, as of Autumn, 1964, held 
buildings which cost $8,000,000 and more 
were on the architect's boards. The current 
construction plan visualizes an expenditure 
of $18,000,000 for the housing of classrooms, 
dormitories, lecture halls, libraries, labora- 
tories and administrative offices. 

On the campus today stand six clusters 
of dormitories representing 25 buildings to 
house 685 students and three resident coun- 
selors. The William Luther Cobb library, gift 
of Mr. and Mrs. William Luther Cobb of 
Tarpon Springs, Florida, already contains 
50.000 of the 100,000 volumes for which it 
is designed. 

The Dendy-McNair Teaching Auditorium 
and Humanities Classroom Building are 
units of the- Humanities Complex. The audi- 
torium, used mainly for mass lectures given 



in connection with the College's Core pro- 
gram, IS a gift of the First Presbyterian 
Church, Orlando, and the classroom building 
was made possible through an anonymous 
gift. 

The Forrer Language Center, which com^ 
pletes the Humanities Complex, was a gift 
from Mr. and Mrs. Samuel H. Forrer of Lake- 
land. 

A dining unit is centrally located in the 
dormitory area. 

The Science Complex, like all academic 
clusters, has three wings — a teaching audi- 
torium, biology lab building, and chemistry 
and phvsics lab building. 

The Helen and Cecil Webb Health Center, 
a gift from Mr. and Mrs. Cecil Webb of 
Tampa, provides offices and equipment for 
medical care of the college community. 

Athletic facilities include an AAU swim- 
ming pool, baseball field, tennis courts and a 
partially developed golf course. 

Three wings of the College Union are 
now complete. Bowling alleys, a card and 
game room, billiards, student offices and a 
ballroom are included in the College Union 
facilities. 





Courses of 
Instruction

Courses of Instruction 



Introduction 



The number of each course conveys the following information: Courses 
numbered 100 to 199 are primarily for freshmen, 200 to 299 for sophomores, 
300 to 399 and 400 to 499 for juniors and seniors. In general, odd num- 
bered courses are given in the first semester ; even numbered courses are 
given in the second semester. 

Before students enroll in any course, they are to seek advice of their 
faculty advisers. Near the close of the school year each freshman is ex- 
pected to prepare a tentative course program for the remaining three 
years of college and to present it to his adviser for critical evaluation and 
counsel. At the end of the second year of study each student must submit 
for approval to the Committee on Academic Review his projected program. 
A student may revise his program at any time thereafter with the approval 
of a major professor. 

This catalogue lists the Core courses which all students must take, and 
also lists the courses according to academic divisions and academic disci- 
plines within each division. Courses are conducted typically in three lecture 
discussion periods per week supplemented by other periods, studios or 
laboratories. 

Course descriptions are not given for the Special Topics and Senior 
Seminars because a professor is free to vary his offerings each year 
according to student interest and his own study and research. Students 
receiving the endorsement of the professors in their major field may take 
the equivalent of two courses each semester during their junior and senior 
years in a program of guided independent study and research which should 
culminate in an acceptable thesis presentation. 



42 



Core Courses 

The basic objective is to develop within the student a critical under- 
standing of some of the major attempts of man to interpret his experience 
through the analytic and historic study of works and institutions. Through- 
out, the concern is with the relevance of the Judeo-Christian tradition and 
of the redemptive message of the Bible in human inquiry. This Core 
curriculum makes up about 30 per cent of the student's academic program. 

During the freshman and sophomore years the materials of the program 
are drawn primarily from the literature, history, art, natural science, 
social science and philosophy of the European and American traditions. 
The staff is drawn from all three divisions of the faculty. Three lectures 
or other presentations are given each week to the class as a whole. Three 
hours are spent each week in small groups in the analysis and discussion 
of the documents which make up the materials of the program. Each 
discussion leader supervises the writing program of the students in his 
group. At the end, of the second year a comprehensive examination de- 
termines the credit for the two years' work. The third year program focuses 
upon the institutions and works which do not belong to the western tradi- 
tion, and it is designed to apply to the analysis of other cultures the skills 
acquired during the first two years. The fourth year program is built 
around a series of lectures presented by persons of national and interna- 
tional prominence and is designed to familiarize the seniors with some of 
the pressing issues of the contemporary scene. 



Reading 

Reading ability and effective study go hand in hand ; usually a good 
student reads well. Hence Florida Presbyterian College offers a special 
program for all students to improve their reading. This program is not 
only for students deficient in reading ability but also for good students. 
Often superior students can become even more efficient by increasing their 
reading rate ; the best students often make phenomenal improvement. Our 
reading laboratory is well equipped, containing rate pacers, tachistoscopes, 
a controlled reader and a library of reading texts. This laboratory provides 
both group work and attention to individual needs. With some suggestions 
and guidance from the instructor, the student works as independently as 
possible. A proficiency test is administered to all freshmen and transfer 
students. On the basis of this and other tests they learn whether they 
should work on special reading skills, or whether, though their reading is 
above average, they can profit by increasing their rate. Throughout their 
four years students can receive help in achieving efficient reading rates 
necessary to enable them to master the heavy reading assignments of our 
program.

Resume 

The basic goal of the quality, liberal arts education offered at Florida 
Presbyterian Colleg-e is to open new horizons to its students. Its emphasis 
is on growth and individual attainment. It endeavors, in every aspect, to 
encourage creative action and the power of decision on the basis'of informed 
and thoughtful judgment, consciously pursued. The young men and women 
who attend this college must possess an eagerness to learn, a desire to 
grow physically, intellectually and spiritually, and have a willingness to 
accent much of the responsibility for their own learning. 

Florida Presbyterian College has a deep concern for its students and 
seeks in every way through its faculty and facilities to stimulate the 
realization of individual potential and to inculcate the seriousness of the 
student's vocation. In the guidance of student development, the college 
encourages its students, as subjects of the learning process, to be emotion- 
ally independent, to think for themselves, to exercise as citizens of a 
democratic society their right and duty of personal judgment. As individ- 
uals, the students are challenged to have the strength to stand in solitary 
responsibility lest they become molded into personalities without purpo.se 
or identity which reflect only the wishes of others and who change with 
every new prevailing circumstance. It plans to confront them with the 
conflicts of culture and to arouse within them the feelings of anxiety that 
should intensify their search for meaningful and applicable values and aid 
them in evolving an understanding of themselves and their studies in 
relation to culture, creation and the Ultimate. 

As a Christian institution of higher learning, Florida Presbyterian 
College acknowledges as its primary search "the knowledge of God and 
knowledge of ourselves as revealed in Jesus Christ." It purposes to nurture 
the beliefs and attitudes that are central to the Christian interpretation of 
man, to employ faith as a probing and vitalizing force and not as a substi- 
tute for mental lethargy, and to inspire a strong sense of Christian nidral 
obligation for involvement and leadership in local and global events. 

Florida Pre.sbyterian College maintains a unified academic community 
in which each member's recognition and .security depends on the pursuit 
and attainment of scholarly interests and Christian relationships. Here 
learning is regarded as personal because of the realization that knowledge 
comes through others ... of differing as well as similar backgrounds 
and pursuits. All methods for the establishment of truth in every aspect 
of life are employed to provide insights and skill which train and excite 
the intellect and emotions for creative and imaginative exi)ression. Fi'eedom 
of thought is cherished, unfettered by arrogant assertions of opinion and 
pious devotion to blind tradition. It fosters a setting in which the respect 
for human dignity and the firmness in exercising moral responsibility is 
supported by the belief that humanity was created by God (nv one great 
cooperation.
